Skin ‘N’ Bones

Leonardo the Terrible Monster by Mo Willems

After sharing the book, talk about the hair, nails (claws), teeth and horns on the monsters. Talk about how hair and nails are adaptations of the skin/hide and teeth and horns are a part of the skeletal system (bones) of the body. You might also invite a guest from a venue such as a zoo, where there may be “touching” examples of each for children to examine.
